If you are not quite ready to implement a complete safety and health program, here are some simple steps you can take to get started. Completing these steps will give you a solid base from which to take on some of the more structured actions you may want to include in your program.
Establish safety and health as a core value. Tell your workers that making sure they finish the day and go home safely is the way you do business.
Lead by example. Practice safe behaviors yourself and make safety part of your daily conversations with workers.
Try one of the following activities at safety meetings or any workplace gatherings throughout the year. These engaging activities can increase participation in safety and health programs by getting managers and workers thinking about and discussing what safety on the job means to them.
Why Safety Matters
Initiate conversations about safety by offering managers and workers ways to think about their motivations for contributing to a safe and healthy workplace.
Begin framing safety and health conversations by asking managers and workers to share a photo that depicts why it’s important for them to come home safely from work each day.
